Twelve singles were taken out from their third album, ‘New Identities’, with rarities and excellent b-sides, that would later be collected in a compilation CD in 2014 by the Seattle indiepop label Jigsaw Records. -THE YELLOW MELODIES come back to the music scene at the end of 2017, with the release of ‘Life’, their 8th album , that features brand new own songs that enrich their musical universe. Duglas T. Stewart (BMX Bandits), once described them as a band who had “a love of POP with capital letters, with an extraordinary musical sensitivity, an authentic and charming type”. -They come back to the music scene in 2020, after including some songs in compilation albums such as «F.A.R. out» (Fadeawayradiate) and «A very cherry Christmas» (Cherryade) -THE YELLOW MELODIES release 3 successive EPs and an album all along 2020, titled ‘Sunshine Pop’, a remarkable collection of vital songs, mainly sung in Spanish, with bright arrangements and lovely harmonies very close to perfection. Brilliant melodies, a hedonistic attitude and above all, a lot of pop, charmingly sophisticated pop. And that’s not all, as this year there will also be a release of a 7″ vinyl with three songs on the Greek label Old Bad Habits. -THE YELLOW MELODIES are essentially a group of songs, regardless of its shape or form, whether it’s indie pop, psych pop, orchestral pop, power pop, mod or beat, its first and foremost pure POP! They play music from the heart, with true passion and with style and flair.
